Some song lyrics misheard over the cafe hubbub…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s fine 17th c. English expletive is ‘Stap me vitals!’ – and no, before you ask, I don’t know what ‘stap’ means – it sounds like it’s a verb though doesn’t it? Perhaps it’s a corruption of ‘stab’? I don’t think it will be short for Stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotency though – not back in those days… (I just Googled it)
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

‘Away-ee-ay, ee-ay…’
‘Girl, you come to unlock my hunger.’
‘Bees fly away – ooh ooh.’
‘Seize a pile – lies on my window pane.’
‘Pleepa-yawning, tell me but mucky…’
‘We are the bum sorts baby.’
‘Chuggy chuggy – the rooms, the rooms!’
‘Four hundred cows – no no…’
‘Jump in the pie – ee-ow ee-ow!’
‘Feel you, hands in the night.’
‘Got a moose song, down the road I go…’
‘You are the cool shed world girl.’
‘Let’s throw a musty!’
‘Feeling round for your back, I’m poon now…’
‘You got a nose, oh oh…’
‘Sleep marks hang around.’
‘Grease-tone grease-tone let’s go!’
‘Every eye I wash you, I wash you.’
‘I think about to laugh again.’
‘Oh oh oh oh, take a bargee lover!’
‘I had a chance to stay with shoe.’
‘Please don’t – ears are for people.’
‘Shine in my backyard girl!’
‘Septy in my hand, a copsy and a ton of rain.’
‘Wish I had a murmur tree, a crawl-up lobster.’
‘I’m stunned by the shaping baby.’
‘A corridor silhouette, a stabbing witch!’
‘Flab song, flab song, the ice goes wrong…’

  1. You could put this to music. The murmur tree sounds lovely, brings to mind a weeping willow by a river somewhere, and a medieval man strumming one of those guitar things. 😀

    I would definitely welcome a bargee lover, if I could fins one.
